Get a george foreman grill. I thaw mine in the microwave for a minute a side or so then throw it on the grill and it takes around 7 minutes. That's like under 15min from frozen to ready ... do you not have 15 min? My grill can also fit easily 4 large chicken breasts at once ... maybe more?

Also, I buy chicken breasts in 4kg boxes. They are about $35 but much cheaper than buying them 2, 4, or 6 at a time.

That or you can use your over to cook a bunch of them at a time. Takes a bit longer but you could do a whole week's worth at once.

Precook your chicken and portion it out in ziplock baggies & freeze. Take out of freezer & put in fridge as you need.

Want deli meat? Buy a meat slicer (about $100 at bed bath & beyond), so you can shave it paper thin and you have fresh deli slices without all the sodium and chemicals.

You could always cook a turkey and make turkey sandwiches. this is a great source

As the others have said, preparing food and heating it up later is a good option. Protein powders can also be an inexpensive way to get some extra in your diet. Tuna is another good, cheap source of protein.

Many grocery stores sell pre-cooked rotisserie chickens for like 5 or 6 bucks. Pick one up and just carve it at home, removing all the skin and fat that you aren't comfortable eating. It is not ideal, but it's better.
